SKYWATCH FRIDAY (Sundown, Moonup)



A couple of nights ago as the sun was setting over the city it set the sky aglow with a glorious palette of colours.


And then, as if that wasn't enough, a quarter moon crept quietly into the sky to complete the scene.


No matter the trials and tribulations of your day or the convulsions of the world at large, it is moments like this that soothe the soul.......................
